Yuzu is a strange fruit- citrusy and bold. Those three words: strange, citrus and bold are the perfect beginnings for a great beer. So, our brewers paired yuzu with the sourness of a Berlinerweiss to create this beerlicious Yuzu Berlinerweiss. Brewed with pale malt and wheat this Berlinerwiess was acidified with Lactobacillus for a light, dry mouthfeel and tart refreshment. Hazy and straw-colored, the yuzu fruit brings a tropical charm to a traditional beer.

AwaKe (148) - Laval, CANADA - NOV 9, 2015
En bouteille. Couleur blonde limpide avec mousse blanche très aérienne. Arômes similaire à une gueuze, pommes vertes, eau salé, barrique. Goût citroné, yuzu, acidité assez faible mais effervescence elevée. Petit goût salé avec amertume d’écorce de citron. Palais faible. C’est bon mais rien pour venir fou...

December 27th, 2013 - Yuzu is one of my favorite Japanese flavors, and so much so that it might trump the usual gaijin’s obsession with green tea and matcha. My favorite manifestation is in ramen (served near Harajuku station) but I can see where it might play well with beer. Optimism high, I poured out this next brew in the Lips of Faith series, kicking up a huge corky head over hovering over a slowly circulating golden body. Once that wall of bubbles died down I began to sense a smell like a Berlinerweisse, composed of lemon, butter, dandelion, pear, and pastry dough. It’s sweet, but dry at the same time, like a Prosecco, with a more pointed citrus character. True to form, the palate is light and fluffy, and the first crash of the flavor reminds me of ponzu, or other kinds of gyoza dipping sauce. This couldn’t be more spot on with my expectations, and while I’m sure this falls short on technical points, that curious Zuzu taste of lemon and orange with a short aftertaste and a touch of booze is exactly how I imagined a yuzu beer would come to be.

KyotoLefty (8142) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 27, 2015
Tap at Biertempel. Funky yuzu nose, light yogurt, cream, lemon, acid. Cloudy, glowing gold, fine head. Bit yuzu is pretty nice, then brett, some lactic acid, wheat. Not all that impressive, but ok. Maybe needs more time to let enbrett work more. Sweet, unbalanced.

Bottle. Very slightly hazy yellow pour with a thin head, gone quickly. Citrus-heavy aroma. Taste is similarly citrus-forward, with some hops bitterness. Really lively carbonation and a thicker mouthfeel than you might expect.

czar (6217) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
sample at mondial de la bière 2015 - mtl. hazy/cloudy pale yellow pour with a frothy and almost creamy white cap, good retention and lacing. lemon pie, fragrant yuzu, some rubber and umami-meaty disturbing molecules, awkward spices perhaps - cumin, cardamom; flowers, peels but also citrus juices, light on-the-spot acidity - citric and lactic. average-light carbonation, light body; nicely tart lemony finish. some disturbing elements but overall a nice sour cream-y topped lemon pie.
